The last 24 hours I have been bombarded with a whole bunch of things from different directions including:
one of my children telling me something that is impossible instead of asking for it and then freaking out when I suggested things might not go exactly as planned;
a work situation that is a complete challenge that will involve me taking on a whole bunch of "big people" in order to help one "insignificant" teenager find a home;
a person who found my blog who is a 20 year old kid in Uganda trying to keep 14 children alive in an orphanage he is creating -- he's asking for my guidance;
a sore throat and a cold that are keeping me at less than 100% capacity;
two kids who took long naps last night and were wandering around late into the night, one of them doing something he's really not supposed to do;
an email from a friend of mine who is battling cancer;
a joyous wonderful breakfast with one of the "sunshiniest" people I know who lifts my spirits every time;
a full inbox that requires processing NOW;
a three day trip with Bart, leaving tomorrow that I have to prep everyone for -- kids, caregivers, etc;
and just a general sense of the overwhelming amount of things that I not only have to do but WANT to do -- and the annoying fact that there are only 24 hours in a day that I must sleep.
emails back and forth about a new book project. I'm excited about it. In fact, I might tell you about it sometime....
SO.... I'm feeling a bit emotionally bombarded at the moment which is why I'm just now getting around to blogging.
Maybe I'll have a bit more time to focus on the trip...
